Fashion Deja Vu — Marilyn Monroe Edition

"Nowadays, two big stars wearing the same outfit is a major fashion faux pas, but back in Hollywood’s heyday it was common practice to recycle clothes so the studios could save a few bucks. While many of Marilyn’s dresses and costumes are considered to be style icons, she often wasn’t the first (or the last!) to wear them". By Marijane Gray for Immortal Marilyn

The Ruby is July's Birthstone!

Judy Garland's fabulous ruby slippers in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz

Tiffany published poems for each birthstone month  "of unknown author" in a pamphlet in 1870, this is July's.
The gleaming Ruby should adorn,
All those who in July are born,
For thus they'll be exempt and free,
From lover's doubts and anxiety.
